Egg and muffin toaster

Okay, all kidding aside, has anyone tried this combo egg and muffin toaster?

I know it's ridiculous, but I'm just so intrigued by it.

Chino Wayne, feel free to point your finger at me and laugh heartily.

  1. I saw that last night for the first time and the only idea of could think of was ........

    RONCO strikes again.

    This will join the salad shooter, pocket fisherman, Chia Pet and other inexpensive gifts that are soon to be found at garage sales everywhere.

    1. I predict all who purchase will throw away within 1 year.

        HA! You might be right, but, actually, now that I've read the reviews on Amazon, it sounds like more of them will break before that point. The people who have them seem to love them, but they seem to complain pretty consistently about a couple of things.

      2. Funny, I just learned about the Egg and Muffin toaster a couple of weeks ago. I read about it on this blog...

        Surprisingly, it has received good reviews from Amazon users (4.5 out 5 stars from 148 reviewers).

        1. Hey, thanks for the link. I have to say, the reviews on Amazon are worth reading, from the guy who says it's a great way to boil eggs "without the mess and splashing" to the guy who says that this gadget is so great that his girlfriend had to tell him "shut up about your stupid toaster." Really funny.

          Sad thing is, I think I might have to have it. I know it's not very chowhoundly of me, but I love to make "egg mcmuffins" at home--with good cheese and whole wheat english muffins. It's not that hard, of course, but the neat thing about this gadget is that it times everything so it's all done at the same time, which I think is a kick. And, your egg comes out the perfect shape to fit on the muffin.

            Either Bed, Bath, and Beyond or Linens n' Things sells small frying pans (I think one has a cute little egg guy on the handle). They're the perfect size for cooking eggs (over easy, scrambled, egg beaters) for english muffins and much cheaper ($5-6?) than the Egg+Muffin machine. I've also seen them in sets of 3 at HomeGoods.

              Those little frying pans sounds like a good deal, and with no moving parts to break!

                They are great! I make my eggs over medium in them so I don't have to worry about the whites running all over the pan. And if we're making egg+muffin in the morning before work, I can use two pans on two burners and get it done at the same time, which is good because my boyfriend prefers scrambled over anything else, while I like runny yolks.

          2. I actually got one as a housewarming gift a couple of months ago and love it. It's actually pretty cool and handy. I was worried the egg might come out tasting funny like the microwave egg makers but it does not. And like TDQ says, the egg comes out in a perfect shape to fit on the muffin.

              Hey, it's good to know there's someone out there who has one! If Santa is a chowhound, maybe there will be one under the tree for me this year, too.
